PHOENIX -- Phoenix police believe a man reported missing has been murdered.

Police served a search warrant Thursday morning at a home near 12th Street and Indian School Road in connection with William McGrath, who has been missing since mid-August.

On Thursday, officers searched for his body at the home of a man who worked for him, Bradley Tocker.

Police say McGrath met Tocker online and they had been working together for several months as interior designers.

Police arrested Tocker for fraud after investigators say he has been using McGrath's identity. They believe he likely killed McGrath for financial reasons.

Police say Tocker was hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt.
